Re: Has anyone gotten Nvidia Driver on new Fedora 9?
Aaron stated earlier that future 173.xx NVIDIA graphics driver releases will support the new ABI in its current form. That said, although NVIDIA does make an effort to enable its drivers to work with new versions of the Linux kernel, the X.Org X server and other integral system software components as early as possible, pre-release software is not supported.
Fedora 9 is shipping a pre-release X server. If you can't wait for an updated NVIDIA graphics driver and the limited support provided in 173.08 graphics driver release is insufficient for your purposes, please use the X.Org nv driver or fall back to a supported distribution.
